The Royal Baby Of Sussex Is Coming

After months of joyous anticipation, Buckingham Palace confirmed Monday that the Royal Baby is about to make his or her debut. Meghan Markle, the wife of Prince Harry, is reportedly in labor.

Boy or girl? Apparently, Prince Harry and the Duchess of Sussex chose not to find out ahead of time. The baby’s name remains a mystery, too–although people throughout Britain are making high-stakes bets on both.

“Markle and Prince Harry chose to keep their birth plans private, announcing in April that they would be celebrating the birth as a new family before ‘sharing the exciting news with everyone,'” Time Magazine reports. While that choice is a departure from the approach of Kate, Duchess of Cambridge and Prince William, who made their children’s births public, it’s not such a radical shift from royal tradition.

Markle’s mother, Doria Ragland, flew from the U.S. to the U.K. at the end of April, suggesting the Royal Baby was coming soon. Markle attended official events with Prince Harry all the way through her pregnancy but has laid low in recent weeks.

“Markle herself was notably absent from an Easter service earlier in April, suggesting the baby was imminent. Prince Harry, meanwhile, attended the London Marathon to cheer on runners at the end of April,” Time reports.

The new baby will be seventh in line for the British throne.
